"Google argued that the interception of payload data from unsecured wireless networks does not breach the Wiretap Act. The eavesdropping was not necessarily unlawful, the FCC accepts, and could not find evidence that Google had used the stored data illegally."
If you are stupid enough to run unsecured wi-fi I don't think you have an "expectation of privacy".
